It is regarded that no less than 150 Nigerian youth will compete in the first permanent competition to be held in May in Lagos.
The competition labeled “The Last Man Standing” aims to set a world record for the longest time any human being on earth has ever had.
Edmund Tawiyah, the National Coordinator, Last Man Standing Competition, Nigeria, revealed on Saturday in Lagos that 150 Nigerian youths were expected to participate in the competition.
Young Nigerians, men, and women, between 18 and 45 years old, who have a good state of health, can participate in the contest.
According to Tawiyah, the winner will receive a new SUV, as well as the first Resistance Medal to be awarded by a senior officer in the Nigerian Army.
“This competition is expected to identify young and resilient men and women.
“One hundred and fifty young Nigerians will stand literally in an open space throughout the day, all night, when it rains come shine, for a minimum of five days and a maximum of seven days.
“This will be until the toughest and toughest of all emerge as the Last Permanent Man 2018.”
“During the competition, contestants can walk inside the arena, dance, converse with other contestants.
“But there will be no seats, no supports, no squatting or pharmaceutical help,” he said.
On the objectives of the competition, Tawiyah said: “We want to instill belief in Nigerian youth to face their life goals through strength, character, and resilience.
“We are also against hunger.”
